FASHION AND MATERIALISM

Ulrich Lehmann (University for the Creative Arts)

Marxism in Culture Seminar
Friday 15 June 2012, 17.30-19.30
Senate Room, 1st Floor Senate House (Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU)

Fashion is the most materialist of industries, promoting the constant consumption of new objects at ever increasing intervals. Yet fashion has not been subject to any substantial materialist critique or analysis. In this seminar I will discuss the historical basis and contemporary approach to a materialism of fashion.
Ulrich Lehmann is a cultural historian living inLondon. He works across two areas of research: 1) European cultural history of the long nineteenth century (French Revolution to fin-de-siecle), in particular artisanal labour, its organisation and products; 2) modern fashion history and theory (1860 to today), especially the cross-over between clothing and other cultural philosophies and expressions.
All welcome!

JOURNAL OF RESEARCH IN PEACE, GENDER AND DEVELOPMENT

Journal of Research in Peace, Gender and Development (Formerly, Journal of Peace, Gender and Development Studies JPGDS)

http://www.interesjournals.org/JRPGD

Introducing the Journal of Research in Peace, Gender and Development (JRPGD) (ISSN: 2251-0036).

Dear Colleague

I am pleased to inform you that the April 2012 issue of the Journal of Research in Peace, Gender and Development is out. You can view this issue with the link below:

http://www.interesjournals.org/JRPGD/Contents/2012%20Contents/April.htm

The Journal of Research in Peace, Gender and Development (JRPGD) is a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal that is published monthly by International Research Journals (http://www.interesjournals.org/JRPGD/index.htm/). JRPGD is dedicated to increasing the depth of the subject across disciplines with the ultimate aim of expanding knowledge of the subject.

Editors and Reviewers

JRPGD is seeking energetic, qualified and high profile researchers to join its editorial team as editors, subeditors or reviewers. Kindly send your resume to: jrpgd@interesjournals.org

Call for Research Articles

JRPGD will cover all areas of the subject. The journal welcomes the submission of manuscripts that meet the general criteria of significance and scientific excellence, and will publish:

* Original articles in basic and applied research
* Case studies
* Critical reviews, surveys, opinions, commentaries and essays

We invite you to submit your manuscript(s) to: jrpgd@interesjournals.org for publication. Our objective is to inform authors of the decision on their manuscript(s) within four weeks of submission. Following acceptance, a paper will normally be published in the next issue. Guide to authors and other details are available on our website: http://www.interesjournals.org/JRPGD/index.htm

JRPGD IS AN OPEN ACCESS JOURNAL

One key request of researchers across the world is unrestricted access to research publications. Open access gives a worldwide audience larger than that of any subscription-based journal and thus increases the visibility and impact of published works. It also enhances indexing, retrieval power and eliminates the need for permissions to reproduce and distribute content. JRPGD is fully committed to the Open Access Initiative and will provide free access to all articles as soon as they are published.

Best regards
Eghele Akwavbiokpene
Editorial Assistant,
